Short's New Home

After having been banished from the UK's The Daily Telegraph, it hasn't taken long for GM Nigel Short to find a new home for his unique brand of chess writing.

The former world title challenger now writes for The Guardian. To journo, Stephen Moss, Short says:
Chess has huge advantages over many other sports in that it is played all over the world. It's a game for the computer age, a game for the internet age, a game where I can be sitting here in a village with goats and chickens and donkeys, and I can go on the internet and be playing some leading grandmaster in Russia or the Philippines.
